The Young Researchers Forum (YRF) is an exciting pre-conference event especially for postgraduate students (MPH, MSc, MRes, PhD etc.) and their supervisors, whose research relates to health. It has been specifically designed to provide students with the opportunity to present their work in a friendly, supportive forum and to receive feedback from mentors and peers. The event for 2019 is a merge of the YRF day traditionally organised by ASPHER and EUPHA as part of the EPH conference and the PhD Track day, previously held as part of the DPH conference.


Anyone can register to attend the YRF here via the EPH Conference website – even if you’re not presenting, but all presenters must be currently studying, newly graduated from a postgraduate qualification or in the early stages of their career.


The YRF is a free event but the number of registrations is strictly limited – so don’t delay! You can register to attend just the YRF event or you can purchase a DPH 2019 conference pass and enjoy the YRF plus the full DPH and EPH conferences afterwards.

You can register to attend by going to the EPH conference website and selecting ‘Digital Public Health (DPH) Conference 2019’ when prompted. Your pass includes a whole host of benefits including printed DPH programme booklet, conference bag and much more! Purchasing a DPH 2019 conference pass also includes a free ticket to the DPH Gala Dinner on the evening of Thursday 21st Nov!


The YRF event for 2019 is jointly organised by the DPH, the Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region and the European Public Health Association. ASPHER is the key independent European organisation dedicated to strengthening the role of public health by improving education and training of public health professionals for both practice and research. EUPHA is an umbrella organisation for public health organisations and associations in Europe.
